    Hello...I'm Shopping and want to pick some brains for opinions. So far from my own research I'm drawn to the Savage model 93 series. But would truly like to hear from some other folks.......

    I really loved my henry .22 mag, but .22 mag is a little expensive for me to plink with compared to .22 lr.

    I use a CZ 455 American Lux. I haven't had a lot of trigger time on it but it shoots relatively well. The trigger is a bit rough and I understand there is a kit for it, but I haven't gotten one to try out yet. I prefer the trigger on the Savage .17 HMR (Accutrigger) but I like the fit of the CZ to my shoulder.

    I have the Savage model 93. Obsolute tack drive even when the barrel is heated up. And I have a basic Nikon Prostaff 3-9 on it. Anything out to 200 yards is a pretty easy shot with it. Shooting the Hornady 30 grain vmax bullet.

    I have some expensive 22 mags but an old Mossburg bolt action 24" barrel from the 60's is probably the most accurate. I love my 9422mag tho.

    I'm going from bad to worse. Now I'm considering two rifles; the Savage 93G and the Marlin XT-22MTSL. I seem to like the Marlin more but I've heard stories about a loss of quality control in the Marlin's since they got bought by Remington. When S&W bought Thompson / Center it was said to have been a smoother transition than what happened to Marlin after their buy out. But I'm not in any hurry and time will tell the story. Probably have to buy the Ruger American in 7mm-08 first anyway :)

    Just an aside: I was at Cabelas (Marysville) today and they had a bunch of .22WMR, but no .22LR. Sometimes it pays to have a slightly less popular caliber.

    They are expensive, but I have a laminate 77/22 in .22lr that is an incredible gun as well. $500-650 is a lot to spend on a .22 and hard to justify until you have it, then you'll never go back. A Ruger or CZ .22lr or WMR is something that every .22 lover should own.

    Yeah. I don't understand why they haven't released it in .223 yet, but the 7mm-08 is tops on my list. The new Compact American looks great as well.
